You can detach the plastic strip with a very small screw driver.no screws to be removed because they are just clipped together. just be careful to avoid breaking it. after opening it remove also the ribbon cable connecting the keyboard to the motherboard

How do I take out the screen on my HP G71 -329WM laptop


I have a HP Pavilion zv6000 laptop and have replaced both the screen and the hinges, plus a few friends laptop screens all the same way. First remove the battery and unplug the laptop. To replace the screen you will need to to remove the hard drive and remove all the screws form the underside of the laptop to allow access to the underside of the keyboard as the connectors for the screen are under the bezel above the keyboard. Opening the lid all the way will make it easier to get under the keyboard t and bezel then disconnect the power, video signal, and wifi connectors. Might be 1 or 2 or 3 separate connectors. Carefully removed the rubber plugs from the front of the screen and stored them so you didn't loose them. Using a small screwdriver, remove the screws under the plugs. Using a flat screwdriver or small thin blade, carefully separate the bezel around the outside of the screen, it may be glued together so take care not to crack the plastic. At this point would can see the screen screwed in to the hinges and the back of the lid and what screws need to be removed. The wifi antenna is usually attached to both the screen and the lid via tape so take care when removing the screen. Place the new screen back and attach the hinges and connectors, making sure to place the wifi antenna back where it was located properly. At this point I plug in the laptop and verify the HP logo or POST screen appears whe I turn it on, showing that the connections are ok before unplugging and continuing to replace the remaining screws, hard drive and finally battery. Depending on how the bezel around the screen is attached, you might want to use double stick tape as the glue no longer holds the front and back together around the screen. Depending on how mechanical you are, figure between 30 and 60 minutes to replace the screen the first time.

I cracked my screen on a hp G62-140US notebook. It has no screws so how do i change the screen out? I am out of work and can not afford to take it in for repair. Thank You so much.


The LCD screen is secured to the notebook hinges. To access the LCD screen you need to remove the bezel around the edge of the screen. There are screws hidden behind plastic screw covers. The Bezel may also be secured by retaining clicp and double sided tape.

My AcerPower SV has only an internal cd-rom. So iwant to take it out and install an internal dvd-rom. However only one side panel comes off the computer and there doesn't appear to be way to get the other...


This service manual says to remove the front bezel (plastic cover) by "releasing 6 latches". However on my AcerPower the front bezel appears to screwed on, which really complicates things. I'm pretty sure once the front bezel is removed, the floppy and cd-rom can slide out from the front. Hope this helps.

Water problem


If you want to get the water out you take a chance of destroying the screen. You can take the screen apart but if its in the lcd portion of the screen and not the plastic surrounding it, I would have to say that damage is almost certain. You could look at it this way, if you damage it you probably would have had to get another anyways so heres how to do it. Each model and brand has a different way of getting certain parts off of the laptop so I am going to give you the basics and if you pay attention to what your doing you should be able to get the laptop apart without damage. Unplug your laptop and remove the battery. You should remove the strip of plastic between the keyboard and the LCD lid. Sometimes theres screws that hold this to the computer and sometimes they dont. Once you have the plastic trim removed you shoulld be able to see the Video cable going from the mainboard to the LCD lid. Unplug the cable from the mainboard. If you have WIFI in your laptop there will be 2 wires that go to the wifi card. You should be able to get the LCD out without unplugging these wires and having to rerout the cables when you put it back together. You will need some small Philips screwdrivers. Take the stick on tabs off of the plastic bezel in the screen side of the LCD lid to reveal the bezel screws. Take the screws out and carefully pull the bezel off. There are normally tabs that keep the bezel on as well as the screws. Once the bezel is off then you can get to the screws that hold the LCD in the back cover. You will need to carefully remove the wires from the inverter (normally at the bottom of the LCD) since you dont need to take the inverter off of the LCD back cover most of the time. Once you have the LCD out you can take the tiny screws out of the edges of the LCD. You also should unplug the Video cable from the back of the LCD. Now the only thing holding the layers of the LCD together is some tape. Sometimes its an aluminum tape. and sometimes not but remove the tape from 3 sides leaving the side where the wires are taped. Split the frame apart and you will find that you can get to the different layers of display material. DO NOT PULL THEM OUT! Just lift the layers you have to and wipe clean then blow with compressed air to remove dust. Any dust may show when its put back together. Note: Be carefull because the LCD bulb is located in this area. This is the light that lights up the LCD. If it breaks you will have to buy another LCD. Reverse the process to get the LCD back together and see how it works. I have done what you are asking about to change bad bulbs before. At least the LCD should look better and the worst that could happen is you make the LCD not work and you have to go to ebay and get another. Good luck.

I need to frequently clean the inside of my Acer 5610-4534 laptop...I have never disassembled one before; can you help me to get it open?

Insert a small flathead screwdriver under the keyboard bezel and carefully lift it up. Continue releasing plastic latches and removing the keyboard bezel with your fingers

Be careful, on some models the bezel might be connected to the motherboard as it shown on the picture above. If you accidentally pulled the cable, connect it back. It is not necessary to disconnect the keyboard bezel from the motherboard in order to remove and replace the keyboard, just put it aside so you can access the keyboard screws.

Remove three (or more) screws from the top of the keyboard. Carefully lift up the keyboard from the laptop case

The keyboard connects to the motherboard via a flat ribbon cable. Before you pull the cable from the connector, you’ll have to unlock the connector.

The image above illustrates how to unlock the keyboard connector. Carefully move the connector lock 2-3 millimeters up and after that pull the keyboard cable. To install the keyboard, follow the above mentioned steps in the reverse order.

I need to replace the keyboard on my dell inspiron 8600 laptop


Its really simple...

Theres a small lip on the bezel just above the keyboard and all the way to the left side. Stick a small screwdriver under it and pry it up. Unplug the bezel from the right side and put it aside. Unscrew the two screws on the top of the keyboard that the bezel was covering and pull upward gently from where you removed the screws. It should come right up. There is a plug just underneath the keyboard. Unplug it and youre home free. Reverse these steps to reinstall.

Acer l100 memory upgrade


I just attempted this, and I must say that there are many things about the other solutions that just plain wrong. Here is my step-by-step:
  1. Choose your RAM. Use the memory advisor from Crucial to tell you which ram to use: http://www.crucial.com/. I used their PC 5300 2*1GB kit. You can RAM from any retailer, as long as it is the same type recommended by the memory advisor.
  2. Lay the case flat and remove the screw in the middle of the top plate at the back, then slide the top plate off. You will probably have to break the warranty seal to do this.
  3. There are three black clips that hold the front bezel onto the top section. Prise them upwards and the bezel will come away.
  4. There is a black screw on the motherboard near the back, holding down a piece of metal attached to the top section (drive bays). Remove this screw, then pull gently on the plastic handle on the top section to loosen it.
  5. Lift the top section so that you can pull the power and IDE cables from the hard drive at the back, then lift it fully upwards. Be careful of the ribbon cable underneath, you may need someone to hold it up for you while you change the RAM.
  6. To remove the old RAM, do not simply prise it upwards as someone else said. The RAM slot has a metal clip at each side; push these outwards to the sides until they click. This releases the RAM so that they can be lifted out.
  7. Slide the new RAM into the bays and push it down to lock it into place. Make sure both sides click properly.
  8. Reassemble the case in reverse order, taking care to get everything stowed away in the right place. Take care remounting the front bezel to make it is properly in place before clicking the tabs back on top.
Hope someone finds this useful. By the way, while i can in there I noticed an empty expansion bay: anybody know what this is?
